Websites Not Loading Replaces Camping Out On Black Friday

November 25, 2016
Reports are saying crowds were light this morning for "Black Friday." Meanwhile websites were overloaded as shoppers went online instead.

According to Reuters many malls were largely subdued. Nicholas Wingo, a security officer in the Fashion Outlets of Chicago mall reported a steady stream of customers, but no long lines. Bigger crowds were reported at some malls later in the day, but it was definitely different than a few years ago when shoppers would be out before breakfast.

Online sales were huge according to Target, Walmart, and Amazon. Macy's said they had to stop letting people into their website 3 times because traffic was so heavy!
